Getty Inky Challenge

We're into the home stretch with the September Getting Inky with Stencils challenge, but there's still time to submit your project for a chance to win the stencil of your choice.  How good is that?

Fall is definitely in the air and pumpkins are turning up everywhere, include today's project.

Begin by paste embossing the Long Pumpkins (LL514) stencil with regular embossing paste (DEP, the jar with the maroon label).  When the paste is dry, reposition the clean stencil over the image and color with pigment inks (I used Tsukineko's Splendor inks for this project).  Then, cut out the pumpkins in such a way that you end up with two pieces that you can pile one on top of the other.  Add patterned paper and the embellishment and/or sentiment of your choice and you're done!  

For more ideas and inspiration, see what the rest of the team has done and then get busy and submit your project before the end of the month deadline, using Mr. Linky on the Dream it Up! blog.  Ready?  Here you go:

Happy Crafting,
